created with overwhelming support from more than 80% of Philadelphia voters.  The Commission is
charged with proposing a universal pre-kindergarten program that provides high quality, affordable,
and accessible educational services to three- and four-year olds throughout Philadelphia.  The
Commission on Universal Pre-Kindergarten is guided by the principle that high-quality early childhood
education has the potential to produce life-long learners who will become contributing citizens.
